One Response to Facebook Ban in Pakistan and its Implications-Who is winning??

  1. Brigit says:

    Hello, Is the blocking of access to YouTube by Pakistani government still in effect today May 22nd? I haven’t seen any update on the landslide situation from any of the members I am subscribed to for the last 4 or 5 days.

    I am offering free hosting on LiveLeak http://www.liveleak.com/ if copyright owners of the videos grant permission to post/re-post.

    This blocking comes at the worst time for the victims of this disaster and for the victims of increased military action in Swat Valley too.
